Once again you are assigned to fight the hostile aliens known as Landers. You pilot the X15 fighter plane, your sole mission is to protect valuable cannisters scattered on a desolate landscape.

If the aliens capture a cannister and take it to the top of the screen, it will turn into a mutant. To prevent this you have to zap the aliens and catch the cannister before it hits the ground and disintegrates.

If all the cannisters are captured, the aliens will turn into mutants and will not rest until they have destroyed you. As you progress to higher levels, different ships will attack and the rescue will become difficult. You are awarded points from 10 to 80 and every 100 points earn an extra life and ammunition.

The games from this stable are always interesting and Gauntlet is no exception. The graphics are excellent, as is the sound. The score table uses two modes at the same time, which produces a stunning effect. With an appropriate interface, joysticks can also be used with this program.
